Share Your Story: Alexandra McCarthy

As far as cancer goes, Alexandra McCarthy has always considered herself to be a student. She has leaned in the direction of a natural approach in her life. When she was told in 2018, she had cancer, she immediately started searching for natural remedies to heal it. It's been four years of a long journey of doing lots of research, self-experimentation, personal healing, and success.
